tablespoons granulated sugar
cup fresh lime juice
tablespoons fish sauce
garlic clove, minced
1 to 2
bird’s-eye chiles, minced with seeds
- In a small bowl, whisk the sugar into 1/4 cup water until dissolved. Stir in the lime juice, fish sauce, garlic and chiles to combine.
- Use immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Serve as a dipping sauce for fried spring rolls, and as a topping for noodle and rice salads, or grilled meats and fish. Mix with soups, greens or cooked vegetables to perk them up.
